No one has seen her. No one has heard from her. She's been missing...a ghost.
I hate to admit it, but I've been bad. Lazy, to an extent, but living life. I've been through a lot of personal drama over the past year. A little more than a year actually. Divorce (praise the powers that be)...it was a long time coming and I'm glad to be done with that part of my life. In turn, had to sell my big house with a pool and down size, but I bought it without any help from anyone. Only my name on the mortgage. It's all mine! Promotion at my 9-5...I took the plunge and applied for a better paying job (not much) within the same department. Which meant I had to give up working at home for an undetermined amount of time to go through the training process. I've almost completed it now and they upped the days to work at home from 3 to 4. Something to look forward to in a couple months when I'm allowed to journey back home. New boyfriend...This is my favorite change. Originally had met him a couple years ago at a party at my neighbor's house, but I was unhappily married *eye roll* and he didn't talk much. I always thought he was attractive but, of course, couldn't do squat about it. Such is life. Fast forward to New Year's Eve 2015, recently (officially) split, enter Chris (my boyfriend, in case you couldn't get that). He's broadening my horizons in all sorts of ways. Lots of firsts with him. Lots. He's a sexy, bearded, manly man...totally swoon-worthy. I can't get enough of him. When he's at work, I miss him. When he's in the kitchen, I miss him. When he's on the other side of the bed, I miss him. It's sickening, I know, but it's new. It's still fresh. He's sweet most of the time. He does things for me which no one has done before.
**Nugget of info: Last year, when Prince passed and some theaters played Purple Rain, he surprised me by taking me to see it. Prince (Purple Rain tour) was my first concert (13th birthday) and I will never forget it. To say I love him is an understatement. Not only did I get to see Purple Rain on the big screen, but no one...when I say no one, I mean NO ONE has ever surprised me like that before. It was the sweetest thing ANYONE has ever done for me and it will go down in the books of one of the best days of my life. This just shows you what kind of guy he is. He knew I loved Prince and was saddened by his passing and he surprises me with that...and that also was around my birthday.
So, in a nutshell (I guess a big nutshell), I haven't been writing because I've been FINALLY living! I know I keep saying I will get back to the stories, AND I WILL. I have to. Unshakable has to be told. Taught has to be finished. And I need to start all the others I have ideas on. I will start putting my extra time to better use. I am still getting my house the way I want it or in some kind of order, but that gets boring and frustrating when I don't have the money to do anything about a lot of it. Little victories here and there. I have 4 days off this coming weekend and maybe, just maybe, I will get some writing in. HANG IN THERE! DON'T LOSE FAITH! THE STORIES WILL COME! (in more ways than one *wink)
Love to you all! (unless you're my ex...recent ex that is...then, eat a dick)
